Ai Weiwei. Legend.

Gangnam Style is a rather horrific pop tune by South Korean rapper Psy that in recent weeks has gone viral, spawning a plethora of Gangnam memes.  And now Ai Weiwei has jumped on the bandwagon, posting his own version of Psy’s signature pony dance.  The ebullient artist and his posse look like they’re having a hoot, but Ai also spikes his frenetic dancing with a provocation.  In several scenes he brandishes handcuffs, hinting at the Chinese government’s attempts to restrict his freedom.  This latest video is yet another example of the artist thumbing his nose at authority, and having a jolly good time while he does it.

Ai Weiwei. Legend.
